We are pleased to announce Portland Seed Fund’s (PSF) continuing support of #PDXSW. PSF is a longtime supporter of PDXSW, providing financial support and mentoring over past events.
PSF finds and surrounds the most promising seed-stage companies with capital, mentoring and contacts to nurture economic growth in Oregon. The fund selects entrepreneurs with a great idea and passion and grit to see it through. They invest in classes of 6-9 entrepreneurs at a time, start them with an initial $25,000 investment, and see what they can do in 90 days. They surround them with mentors, subject matter experts and a peer group of entrepreneurs that understand their challenges and share their successes.
PSF was established in 2010, beginning with a $500,000 grant from the Portland Development Commission. As of January 2012, the fund had raised $3 million from government backed entities and private investors.
Thank you PSF for your continued support! We value your involvement!
